What is Throwback Thursday?
I’ve noticed several of these memes on a few book blogs. For example, Susan Loves Books does one, which is (or was originally) hosted by Renee@It’s Book Talk. I also noticed that another fellow blogger, Lorrea @ What ‘Cha Readin’?, was doing this as a monthly meme for her blog. In most instances, they use this to share one of their favorite reads or older reviews. Lorrea is doing it for books she enjoyed over the last decade. I really like this idea and am essentially stealing it from them, but with my own twists.
- The Chocolate Lady’s #ThrowbackThursday takes place on the Thursday before the first Saturday of every month (i.e., the Thursday before my monthly #6Degrees post).
- My posts will highlight one of my previously published book reviews, and I encourage other participants to do the same. However, you can also highlight any old blog post, or any old thing you wish – the point is the “Throwback” part! So, for example, if you want to participate but have a new blog that doesn’t have old reviews to highlight, you are encouraged to write a post (maybe even a mini-review) of a book you read long ago, a book you loved that no one seems to know about, or a classic you’ve always loved.
- If you want to tweet or share this post, or someone else’s post, or the reviews being highlighted, please use #ThrowbackThursday!
- Please add the link to your post to the link party, below.
- Please link back to this page on your post.
So… with no further ado, I give you…
The Chocolate Lady’s Throwback Thursday Book Review #4
Very Carefully, Apparently!
My review starts thusly:
“Two years after Doug and Hailey were married, Hailey died in a plane crash, leaving Doug her home in the suburbs, her angry son who doesn’t want to live with his father because of his new trophy wife, a large settlement from the airline and Doug’s life in a shambles. That was a year ago, it’s time to move on, or so his family seems to think; but how can he?
From this summary, don’t think this is going to be a heavy drama filled with angst, tears and heartbreak. In fact, it may surprise you that this is actually a very funny book. …”
If you like this idea, and want to do your own Throwback Thursday post, please put the link in the comments below. If this idea gets enough popularity, maybe Lorrea or I will turn this into a hashtag with our own link-up (maybe even put up rules and everything)!
If you want to do this yourself, you can let me know about your blog post in this link party below. (You can also just post a link to an old review you want us to look at, without making a separate post.) I’ll keep this link party open until my next #ThrowbackThursday post (scheduled for July 2, 2020).
